 Kentucky USDA Refinance Funds Have Been Exhausted for Fiscal Year 2012!
August 21, 2012
USDA Mortgage Purchase and Refinance Funding Update for Kentucky Homeowners and Buyers 
This announcement is to inform you of the current commitment authorities available for the Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program (SFHGLP) loans.
Due to a change in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 fee structure which goes into effect October 1, 2012, Lenders are urged to check with States to determine application processing time frames before underwriting applications.
 USDA Mortgage Refinance Funds:
FY (fiscal year) 2012 USDA Mortgage refinance funds have been exhausted.
We expect to run out of refinance commitment authority no later than Monday, August 20, 2012.  When USDA Mortgage refinance commitment authority is exhausted, refinance loan requests for which a conditional commitment (Form RD 1980-18) has not been issued will be returned to the lender and require underwriting under the fiscal year 2013 fee structure.  The FY 2013 fee structure will require a one-time upfront guarantee fee of 2 percent and an annual fee of 0.40 percent.  At this time, the Agency will not issue conditional commitments “subject to” receipt of FY 2013 funding or commitment authority.
USDA Mortgage Purchase Funds:
Lenders are urged to be cognizant of the differing backlogs and processing time frames from state to state.  If it is determined unrealistic that the State will be able to review the USDA loan guarantee application and issue a conditional commitment before September 30, 2012, lenders are urged to underwrite the USDA Mortgage application at the FY 2013 fee structure.  The FY 2013 guarantee fee structure will require purchase and refinance loans to carry a one-time upfront guarantee fee of 2 percent and an annual fee of 0.40 percent.
In addition, if the state where the property is located is experiencing longer processing time frames, lenders should advise the applicant accordingly when discussing interest rate locks and potential loan closing dates.

Kentucky Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program USDA and Rural Housing Changes 10/1/2011

Kentucky USDA/Guaranteed Rural Housing Program
Federal Budget Battle May Affect Funding Effective October 1, 2011
Despite changes in the fee structure effective October 1, 2011, Congress must appropriate funds for the Kentucky Guaranteed Rural Housing program. Assuming Congress passes legislation currently under consideration to keep the federal government fully functional, a number of days will be required to set up the authorized allocation for distribution.
Delays in the issuance of the Conditional Commitment should be expected. We  will be able to underwrite and condition the loan file. However, we will not be able to close and fund the loan until the Kentucky  Rural Housing Conditional Commitment is issued by the Local Kentucky RHS office.
We will notify our clients when RHS resumes the issuance of Conditional Commitments.

USDA Has $11.2 Billion to Guarantee No-Down Mortgages in Kentucky

USDA Has $11.2 Billion to Guarantee No-Down Mortgages in Kentucky

By Steve Cook Print Article Print Article

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has only two months to spend $11.2 billion on its no-down payment rural development loan program, a record amount at this juncture in the federal fiscal year for the program that provides no-down payment mortgages to borrowers in rural and suburban markets.

Usually by August, the program—which has become extraordinarily popular since the demise of private no-down financing—runs out of money and applications are put on hold until more money becomes available with the beginning of a new federal fiscal year on October 1.

This year, however, the program is enjoying a windfall—the result of a continuing resolution signed by President Obama that doubled the size of the USDA’s Rural Development Service’s Section 502 single family guaranteed loan program, taking it from $12 to $24 billion. Some $12 billion has been allocated over the past three months.

Founded in 1949 to spur home sales and development in rural areas, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s popular direct and guaranteed rural housing loans are one of the few places in America you can still get a mortgage with no money down at competitive rates.

Borrowers don’t have to be lower income—in fact they can make slightly more than the median. To qualify for the government guaranteed loans, borrowers can earn up to 115 percent of the median income for the area. Nor do they have to buy in rural area. They can live relatively close to a major urban area or in a popular resort community; however qualifying areas were recently redrawn to comply with the program’s rural mandate.

Effective October 1 the USDA will begin collecting a monthly mortgage insurance of .3 percent, but their up-front mortgage insurance will be reduced from 3.5 percent to 2 percent. On a $200,000 purchase with a USDA guaranteed mortgage at 5 percent, a buyer’s current mortgage payment will increase $34/month under this new split premium mortgage insurance structure, which could potentially make it more difficult for some buyers to get financing.





The Kentucky Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program (SFHGLP) was allocated $24 billion dollars for Fiscal Year 2011 (through September 30, 2011).  Due to tremendous support from our lending and real estate professional partners over $12 billion has been obligated nationwide.
